So Susan Universal Blush Review & Swatches!

This blush from So Susan retails for $23.29 and can be purchased off of the So Susan website. They ship to both Canada and the USA and this came in my November Glossybox. To get a full sized makeup item is always great, but this blush looked especially promising.

So Susan describes this blush as being a micronized jet-milled blush which works with your skin's natural chemistry to create an universal healthy flush to flatter all skintones. They also say it contains Beruti Oil to supposedly repair the epidermis and improve skin's elasticity though I wont even start to mock or discuss the lunacy of a blush sitting on top of your skin repairing anything. But in reality, its a gorgeous medium rosy pink shade with very subtle gold shimmer that is much more noticeable in these swatches than it is in reality. You all know how much I detest shimmer on the face but this is just a beautiful subtle glow.

Just like the Bourgeos and Dior universal blushes, I feel safe in saying this does no such transforming thing and is simply a good neutral blush that will work on many skintones. Overall, I really love this blush and would be very interested to try some more products from the line.

If anything, the only flaw to me is the packaging. Its a fairly pricey blush, and the packaging to me is not in keeping with the quality or price tag of the blush itself. Its a cheap plastic that has no function or mirror. Without knowing, had I seen this blush I would have assumed a dollar store product. And for a $25 blush, that seems to not mesh. But again, the product is great so its not a deal breaker, just a disappointment.
